  • Execute programs on remote systems

    Hello, Other than scheduling a task is there a way to execute a command on a remote system within Hyena? I've been using PsExec from to do this. Thanks, Mack

    Microsoft does not have any mechanism to execute remote processes on remote systems, unless the action is carried out by another application/process on the remote system. PsExec installs a small service, executes the task, then removes itself. You can use WMI through Hyena to execute a remote task, but Microsoft crippled WMI to only execute remote tasks if they do not have a GUI. If you are executing something that run non-interactively, and want it to run immediately, and have the Enterprise Edition, and if WMI is functional in your environment, then you can try it.

    To use it, right click on a computer, select WMI->Create Process.
